Photo Gallery: Spyderco Native 5 S110V "Blurple" G10 Version

I've always had a crush on the Spyderco Native line of pocket knives. I've also been a big fan of their lightweight models, so it was natural that I got the Native 5 Lightweight model in S110V the day it came out.

Since a new version came out in blue/purple (blurple) G10, I've been kind of on the fence since the lightweight version seemed like the perfect EDC.

This blurple G10 version looked sweet on the photos, and holding it in my hands and using it everyday, it doesn't disappoint. It's like a work of art that can open packages.

Spammers: backpackingmastery.com

About twice a week I get people spamming this blog's comment section with spam links to backpackkingmastery.com. Lots of bloggers and web sites work hard to build something awesome from scratch, and it's not an easy thing to do.

I've always been an optimist about people, so I allow comments to be posted and just delete the spammer/scammer/shill comments. It's a lot of work to manage the comment sections and hunt down the bad comments, but for the most part it's worked well.

But certain shitty sites like backpackingmastery.com have been especially egregious with their spam. If your web site is so good (I haven't looked at it) then why aren't you building your readership the right way with good content and legitimate promotion? I think we all know the answer to that one...
